Gymnothorax javanicus (Bleeker, 1859)
Gymnothorax javanicus occurs throughout the Indo-Pacific, from the Red Sea and East Africa to the Marquesas and Oeno Atoll (Pitcairn Group), north to the Ryukyu and Hawaiian islands, and south to New Caledonia and the Austral Islands. They are often found in symbiosis with cleaner shrimp from the Periclemenes genus, at depths between 0 - 50 m.
